Watermelon Salsa

Serves approximately 4 cups

Peppers and onions spice up refreshing watermelon for a sassy summer salsa.



  • 3 cups watermelon, cut into small dice
  • 1 cucumber, seeded and cut into small dice
  • 2 jalapeño peppers, minced
  • 1 small red onion, cut into small dice
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1/4 cup mint, chopped
  • Zest and juice of 2 limes
  • Salt and pepper



  1. Combine the watermelon, cucumber, jalapeños, red onion, cilantro, mint, lime zest and juice in a serving dish. Season with salt just before you serve to keep the watermelon from extracting its juice.
  2. Serve with whole grain tortilla chips or over steak, chicken or fish.
